Today you will depart on your adventure with an early start at 6:50am at the Ueno Station, please make your own way from your hotel and ensure you arrive on time to board the Shinkansen train to Nagano station. On arrival at the Nagano station, you will be met by your guide and interpreter on the platform. Your first stop this morning is the Zenko-ji Temple, a designated National Treasure built roughly 1,400 years ago. Along with the Todai-ji Temple's Great Buddha Hall, it is one of Japan's most remarkable wooden structures. Then you will enjoy an early Japanese lunch. The meal for lunch includes soba (buckwheat) noodles, a Nagano specialty. After lunch you will depart by bus to the parking area, where you then depart on foot to the Jigokudani Monkey Park, a world-famous park where Japanese macaques can be seen up close as they freely soak in hot springs. This is the only place in the world where wild Japanese macaques can be seen bathing in their own designated hot spring. Enjoy seeing the amusing expressions of the monkeys up close as they warm themselves with a relaxing hot spring bath. Around 2pm you will take a walk back to the bus where you will be transferred to the train station for your train journey back to Tokyo.
